Triptych

In the city of Atlanta, women are dying at the hands of a cunning killer who signs his work with a single, chilling act of mutilation. Leaving behind enough evidence to fuel a frenzied police hunt, this madman brings together investigators, bystanders, and one very guilty man in a harrowing drama.

When Atlanta police detective Michael Ormewood is called out to a murder scene at the notorious Grady Homes, he finds himself faced with one of the most brutal killings of his career: Aleesha Monroe is found in the stairwell in a pool of her own blood, her body horribly mutilated. As a one-off killing, it's shocking, but when it becomes clear, that it's just the latest in a series of similar attacks, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation are called in, and Ormewood is forced into working with Special Agent Will Trent of the Criminal Apprehension Team - a man he instinctively dislikes. But then, only twenty-four hours later, the violence Ormewood sees around him every day explodes in his own back yard. And it seems the mystery behind Monroe's death is inextricably entangled with a past that refuses to stay buried ...

Review:

Without doubt an accomplished, compelling and complex tale, with page-turning power aplenty Daily Express An explosive thriller with plenty of twists - this is criminally spectacular OK! Triptych is structured and paced brilliantly; the tension is unceasing throughout The Times Gripping, gruesome and definitely not for the faint-hearted Woman & Home Queen-elect of forensic mysteries Guardian
